Welcome to the What’s the fine print? series. WOOP, WOOP!

In this series, we take a look at a business, product, or service to review the terms, conditions, and other information you need to know before spending your hard-earned money.

The Fashion Edition of this series is a review of affordable online boutiques that happen to be popular on Instagram. Check out the other posts in this series: MissGuidedFashion NovaZaful.

The questions we wanna know are: Are these stores safe to use? Is there any fine print you need to be aware of when shopping?

This specific review is about *drum roll * SheIn. We’ll cover:

  • What SheIn is
  • What’s the price range?
  • The shipping costs
  • Return policy
  • Key points you need to know

Let’s get to it!

 

What SheIn is

SheIn describes itself as a fast-fashion brand whose philosophy is that “everyone can enjoy the beauty of fashion.” They offer clothes for women, men, and children. SheIn has headquarters in the US and ships worldwide, including the UK and the Middle East.

 

What’s the price range?

SheIn is cheaper than many fast-fashion brands, and is on par with Zaful, possibly even cheaper. Just a warning, be careful of the quality. Sizes may run small and clothing may be fairly see-through. However, as long as you read the reviews and don’t order in a rush, you should be good to go.

 

The shipping costs

Packages may take longer than you’re used to. Processing can take 3 to 7 business days.

Standard shipping takes 6 to 8 business days once the items have been shipped. Express shipping takes 2 to 4 business days.

Standard shipping is free for the US on all orders $49 or more. Express shipping is free for orders $99 or more. Otherwise, express shipping is $12.90.

 

Return policy

Items must be returned within 60 days of receiving your order. SheIn does offer free return shipping for your first time, and a flat rate of $7.99 once your package has been received after that.

All items must be sent out 40 days after purchase. Items returned must be in their unused condition with the original packing, and they won’t accept a returned item that’s worn, damaged washed or altered.

SheIn processes refunds within 7 days upon receipt of your package. Refunds will go back to the original payment or issued to a SheIn wallet. Keep in mind that the original shipping fee, and any insurance, is non-refundable.

 

Key points you need to know

  • Standard shipping is free for orders $49+; Express shipping is free for orders $99+
  • Returns are accepted and are free your first time
  • You have 60 days to send back the items you want to return — one of the longest refund periods for an online brand
  • SheIn may not have the best quality, but you can find some affordable staples

 

Wrap up

SheIn is great if you’re forgetful about returns and you need some staples. It’s a great alternative to Zaful if you like affordable fast fashion.
